Primroses/Primulas in borders

We had some natives flowering in November, but none at the moment although the little clump of Wanda-type is full of buds.

why is there an N in the middle of the word " environment" . seems somewhat superfluous to me.....

 

It's not superfluous if you pronounce it as it's suppose to be pronounced

Are the ones in the churchyard in a sunnier spot?

Or maybe your primroses have been in situ for several years and are a little congested?  If this could be the case I'd split them in the late spring/early summer - primulas really respond well to division

OH has defrosted the bird bath for me  as I nearly went 'top over btm' on the terrace just now replenishing the food I'd put out for the blackbirds - they'd finished it all in 3 hours.  I suppose I should have had sensible shoes on

Bacon butties all eaten - lovely coffee thanks Lily !!!

Verdun, OH has healthy muesli with nuts, seeds and fruit too - and the occasional bacon buttie - moderation in all things

Don't get me wrong BL, we watch Four in a Bed too, but some of the competitors are rather mean-spirited and while that's sort of ok in a commercial enterprise sort of competition, people's gardens are so personal that I think you'd have to be very thick-skinned not to feel upset at unkind remarks about your garden. 

So much tv is very formulaic nowadays
